Bloat ware. . its a major issue. the 16gb s5 out of the box has only 4.5 gb left for the user. You only have to install real racing three and a decent 3rd person shooter snd thats you finished.
ok it has a micro sd which is great.... but a full pc windows 7 install is only 5gb. come on sammy sell me a phone for me to use... not you
This is aimed directly at Samsung. Google doesn't want to be beholden to one phone-maker, especially if Sammie jumps ship to Tizen over time.
Anomynous, 30 Apr 2014Why doesnt Nexus devicesa support USB flash drives? Because they want us to use cloud. Why... moreI think I'm in 2014, and there are plenty of micro USB flash drive is available in the market, even 128 GBs.

F... moreFYI I'm an audio engineer and need to work n travel around with large files and while I do carry my laptop, a phone can be very convenient in many instances! If I am spending big bucks on a smartphone, I'd want it to have ample storage options as and when I need it! You may be using tons of pirated media,but, not everyone does and at any rate your comment is beside the point being made here!
Washpota, 30 Apr 2014EosAkroyiali: "I have a pretty large media and audio library"
Pirated, I guess. F... moreWhat's the definition of piracy in your language??
And in which world you could store a large number of media and audio in just a gig ??

EosAkroyiali: "I have a pretty large media and audio library"
Pirated, I guess. For a legitimate media library, I'm sure, you wouldn't need more than a gig.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2014Are you 8 yrs old or something? Playing games all the time? Why in the earth would you need 12... moreWell my friend, your comment suggests you're the toddler here! Look around and you'll find that most of the "grownups" here prefer expandable storage and removable batteries for reasons which are very apparent to everyone! And alluding to your comment, I hardly play any games on my phone,but, alike many others I have a pretty large media and audio library which I like carrying on my phone! Also, with the upcoming UHD contents, file sizes are only gonna get bigger n bigger n even 128 GB would seem paltry! Would you prefer if you bought a new laptop or PC and it came with just a 128 GB SSD and the maker told you to use cloud services to store all your stuff or would you rather have a sizable hard drive to store your files?? Think about it, though I get the feeling you would say that you'd rather use the clouds! Good 4 ye! Lol!
Time for you to stop the bloatware madness from Samsung. My Galaxy Note 3 is infested with shitloads of bloatware and some updates have to be run through Samsung bloatware.
I couldn't be happier to read this.

This is a good move from Google to stay in game. Fragmentation was something that lacked in the Android. And this is the reason I ditched Android in the first place. But with this move Google may pretty well win the battle. And people who love bloatware or OEM exclusive software can get those software in the Play store.
they should provide OS updates for 3 years not only 18 months unless hardware is not capable.
Anonymous, 30 Apr 2014Are you 8 yrs old or something? Playing games all the time? Why in the earth would you need 12... morePremium means you can push the limits of the device.
To complete with iPhone, you need to make sure your specs INCLUDING storage must be on par.
Currently the max turn off for nexus is 16/32 without expansion... Sure they sell well because its cheap. But once you jack up the price.. 16/32 simply doesn't work.
And remember Just because you cannot make use of 128gb, does not mean others cannot.
I hope the Nexus line continues to receive the same support when it comes to software updates which it has always had. If that is lost, then it will be really bad for Google's reputation because those people who have bought nexuses(nexi??) have all bought it just for the software support.
nooo:( i want nexus ! they're awesome one of the best devices i can't live without them !
Gpe are nothing like nexus !
but good for android !
Samsung also is chinese plastic toy, had two, they both were jokes also S5 is stupid and expensive ! all of devices are also filled with bloatware and it make them laggy and bad !
LG has bad software only
sony isn't bad really ! a little expensive but still good!
